In Their Footsteps - Virtual Introduction to Backyard Owls


January 28, 2021

Lewis and Clark National Historical Park, Fort Clatsop has announced the next virtual “In Their Footsteps” free speaker series event. An “Introduction to Backyard Owls” with Barbara Linnett will be on at 1:00 p.m. Pacific Time, Sunday, February 14. This presentation is part of the February 12-15 worldwide Great Backyard Bird Count activities.

Owls are amazing birds. Owls are found in urban, suburban, rural and forested areas of the world and that includes Clatsop County and the many varied habitats of Oregon and Washington. There is much to know and learn about these unique birds that share our landscape.

Barbara Linnett is a bird enthusiast and wildlife volunteer who believes that the more we share and learn about nature, the more we appreciate, protect and love our natural environment. She is a retired nurse who volunteered for the Wildlife Center of the North Coast for more than eight years. Linnett participates in Project FeederWatch for Cornell Lab of Ornithology, is also creating a native plant garden to provide bird habitat and is managing her small forest for wildlife. This is Linnett’s third year presenting for the park’s celebration of the Great Backyard Bird Count. Visit to learn more about the annual Great Backyard Bird Count.

This monthly Sunday on-line event is made possible by the Lewis & Clark National Park Association (LCNPA), the park’s non-profit partner. Since 1963, the LCNPA has supported education, interpretation, research, and community involvement. Purchases at the LCNPA’s Fort Clatsop Bookstore support programs such as “In Their Footsteps.”
